Nice post! Heat added

Great deal,op - love Quorn

Just a heads up, but Marlow foods has changed the recipe of some of these products in the last few weeks. There's nothing to indicate as much on their packaging but they've reduced the amount of actual Quorn mince in the lasagne by a whopping 46% oO They've replaced what they've taken out with some (cheaper) gloopy sauce. The cottage pie has suffered a similar fate.

I used to quite like those items, especially if I was in a rush, but this latest cost saving 'improvement' leaves them both tasting like something from an Iceland value range.

By the way P McCartney is a singer song writer thought you might have noticed that, only been around since the 60's. Typical meat eater on a veggie thread,

I'll stick to my bacon thanks...... Don't want to feel guilty for killing a cucumber

We eat meat and don't mind switching to Quorn when we need to lose some excess weight as part of a calorie controlled eating plan - that said, the 'bacon' is like shoe leather and non of our veggie friends will touch it either lol

I really like most of the Quorn stuff- but yeah, the bacon is horrid.

you have any source to confirm this change please?

For fresh vegetarian sausages I recommend Cauldron ones - far nicer than Quorn & Linda McCartney ones in my opinion. I'm a meat eater and they're pretty close to the real thing.

Support British farmers - Buy real food.

i prefer real ham/bacon slices... much tastier, healthier and cheaper... and most importantly no GM products...

In moderation as red meat contains a lot of the amino acid Carnitine that converts to trimethylamine-N-oxide via bacteria which is a heart damaging compound.

Charring red meat creates nitrosamines which are carcinogens.

Red meat consumption contributes to an increase factor for Diabetes

Red meat consumption increases risk of colorectal cancer

Moderation is the key.

I enjoy these too, good with mash and gravy

I'm sure this promotion is already on? went shopping on Thursday last week and the lasagne, cottage pie and peppered steaks were already on a 3 for £5 promotion.

Heat added, the lasagne seems great value.

Plus the fat being highly inflammatory, which is a risk factor for heart disease, and some studies showing links with cancer.
Plus the protein component casein being linked (via the largest health study ever conducted, The China Study) to the majority of major diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc.
Though imho, if people can't be bothered to research this sort of thing, then let natural selection take its course ;).

As a designation of evolution our bodies are designed for lesser intake of meat due to the past natural abundance of meat being limited. Now meat is unlimited in our diet. We are designed for survival so are designed to consume meat and other resources to sustain life, however we haven't evolved to eat meat as a daily requisite. Our bodies are naturally designed to retain sodium, we don't need to add it to our diets. The two elements sodium and potassium have a vital balance in the body and are two synergistic but opposing compounds. What this simply means is that fruits, legumes, seeds, plant material is/was abudant in our diet and provides the main source of potassium. Sodium mainly provided by animal flesh was a relatively rarer intake, so our body evolved to retain sodium. It's about balance, higher than natural intake of red meat is bad for health, natural intake of red meat is healthy in a balanced diet.

Have cut back from Quorn branded stuff, over the years the taste has just gone poor, even the own branded Tesco and Asda stuff tastes better to me.

I love posts that say 'all things in moderation'.
If you look back at 20th century medical journals. They also say this..............about smoking.

Just two weeks of eating red meat and processed food increases colon cancer risk, from the paper's today.

Anyone know which of these Quorn efforts are tasty and which are ming? Been 5 or 6 years since I tried their chicken pieces and didn't like it. Might try again (been living off tofu and salmon these days and a change would be nice).

stubar

I ate one of the more recent lasagnes and found it was disgusting. I noticed the packaging had changed slightly and I still had one of the old packets in the recycling bin. They declare the actual Quorn mince content on the packaging and I found it has been reduced from something like 17% to 9%.

I don't ordinarily photograph food packaging to retain as evidence for future debate so you'll just have to take my word for it. Or, just buy them and let your palate confirm that what I've said is correct

This offer has been running for as long as I can remember.

As it's the main picture I guess it's worth mentioning Asda are doing the slices of Ham, Chicken, Turkey & Sage, Beef, at 3 for £4. Other quorn deals also, though not necessarily any better than this one:

I wouldn't call a pre-prepared mass market sausage "fresh".

It's a chilled item, sure.

i appreciate the reply

i guess they are looking to sell larger numbers of a lower quality product to make more $$'s.

Quorn Lasagna is best microwave lasagna out there

I'll not be asking for your opinion on any other products, based on this opinion then

I tried Quorn with an open mind (I'm an Omnivore) and found the products pretty awful at best.

There's so many good quality, natural options out there that are not just processed rubbish (IMNSHO) that I can't really see why this stuff is even considered as food.

I'll happily tuck into a meat free dish, as much as any vegetarian but this Quorn stuff isn't convincing at all.

I've eaten soy based dishes in China that I actually thought was meat, until half way through the meal, then realised, "hang on, this isn't meat!"

Yeah they're the masters at getting tofu to taste like chicken or meat. They have so many names and types of tofu that it's bewildering. They really take cooking with soy seriously. Some tofu dishes are considered local delicacies and much more expensive than any meat dish you could imagine. Gorgeous too. I actually prefer tofu now to meat (the missus is Chinese and has converted me into a tofu hippy). I was always scared of Chinese food, mostly because of the crap Hong Kongnese takeaways in the UK have fed us. But real Chinese food is awesome I've come to appreciate, and I'm a super fussy eater.

I've gotten good at making tofu seriously tasty now, but I'm relying heavily on Chinese imported sauces to do it. We don't have the education or even product ranges here to cook up soy products like they do in Asia.

Sad really.

Anyhoo.. I did some digging today about these heavily processed products like Quorn. Seems a lot of them are full of dodgy stuff like MSG, only renamed so you wouldn't be able to spot it on the ingredients list. Was going to try some in the sale, but ended up not after reading blogs. I did add in some Tesco bean burgers which seemed more natural, had less sat fats, less salt, and less weird ingredients that I didn't understand. Hope they don't taste like cardboard!

Soy isn't exactly a direct substitute. It contains an estrogen mimicker so great for man boobs if eaten regularly, and you can assume unless stated otherwise GM product (UK market) which has been shown to carry residual herbisides and low nutrition vs non GM.

Quorn history was it was a project to find a fungal biomass for human food and I would concede it's processed but largely it's a fungal matter with albumin that contains a decent amount of protein.

I think eating Quorn OR Soy as a staple food ie a lot would be a bad idea, but those that do are probably doing better than most of the population.

Getting people to eat fresh raw ingredients is the ideal.

Tempeh on the other hand.. I will always grab some properly fermented stuff, the mouldier the better

Most Quorn stuff is palatable if a little bland. The peppered steaks are fine with a good sauce and the cocktail sausages though not listed are actually quite delicious. The only one that tastes *EXACTLY* like cardboard is there individual pork pie. It's dry throughout and in explicit medical terms my description of the taste doesn't bear repeating. I really must try tofu though I haven't the foggiest where to start

Might I suggest you read some credible sources of information, rather than blogs. There's a lot of FUD scare mongering out there that is utterly without merit. Quorn is a food few people fully understand what it is, so it's easy for people to make stuff up ("causers cancer!"), and people to believe it and flog to blogs with ad revenue.
I would personally disagree with saying Quorn is "heavily processed", that implies there's some negative action performed on it, but I have never found any evidence of this. Also, I've not seen evidence for this MSG either. Quorn is not high in sat fats or salts, as pointed out earlier in the nutritional information. To date I have not found a single credible piece of scientific study to say anything other than Quorn is a perfectly heathly food source. Only thing even remotely negative is it might give a small number of people farts, but then so do half the foods in supermarkets. If you're unsure what a "weird" ingredient is, you're welcome to ask!

Tofu... UGH... most of it is rank in the UK..

It's also heavily processed .. nothing like the authentic Japanese product

The Taifun is tasty though.. you can get this in Waitrose

I hear you on the Chinese food - I acclimatised to Chinese food in the UK, then lived in Hong Kong for 6 years. I got a bit of shock the first time I saw the locally prepared dishes and wasn't impressed. 2 weeks later it was the other way around

If you like tofu - have you tried "ho chau dao fu" (臭豆腐) aka Stinky Tofu yet? It's deep fried and smells like burning dog poo - I kid you not!
